Box clever – with recycling boxes

With the introduction of the new wheelie bins from September, the big question is ‘What are we going to do with the old recycling boxes?’ Croydon Council will recycle them, but it’s the resident’s responsibility to take them to the recycling centre. The council have made no provision for their collection from residents. They instead […]

Overdevelopment by Chris Philp MP

Fighting the Threat of Overdevelopment One of the best things about the southern part of our Borough – and especially Kenley – is the beautiful greenery we have. Although we are technically in a London Borough, much of our neighbourhood has a rural or semi-rural feel to it. I like that a lot. It makes […]

Wattendon Pond Help Needed

The March snow showers we endured this year stopped the first planned 2018 Pond Work Party. It was very pleasing to see that these scheduled works were carried out the first Sunday in May – and what a delight to see the area looking so clean and tidy, as evidenced in this picture. On behalf of the Kendra Committee I wish to thank all those volunteers […]

Kenley Memorial Hall Volunteers Needed
